MailMergeFilterCriterion Object (Publisher)
Represents a filter to be applied to an attached mail merge or catalog merge data source. The MailMergeFilterCriterion object is a member of the MailMergeFilters object.
Each filter is a line in a query string. Use the Column , Comparison , CompareTo , and Conjunction properties to return or set the data source query criterion. The following example changes an existing filter to remove from the mail merge all records that do not have a Region field equal to "WA". This example assumes that a data source is attached to the active publication.
Sub SetQueryCriterion() Dim intItem As Integer With ActiveDocument.MailMerge.DataSource.Filters For intItem = 1 To .Count With .Item(intItem) If .Column = "Region" Then .Comparison = msoFilterComparisonNotEqual .CompareTo = "WA" If .Conjunction = "Or" Then .Conjunction = "And" End If End With Next End With End Sub
Use the Add method of the MailMergeFilters object to add a new filter criterion to the query. This example adds a new line to the query string and then applies the combined filter to the data source. This example assumes that a data source is attached to the active publication.
Sub FilterDataSource() With ActiveDocument.MailMerge.DataSource .Filters.Add Column:="Region", _ Comparison:=msoFilterComparisonIsBlank, _ Conjunction:=msoFilterConjunctionAnd .ApplyFilter End With End Sub
